“Look, it’s Baldy!” A boy shouted in my direction across the playground. Even though I was
used to regular insults(侮辱)because of the   41  on my head, it was   42  horrible to hear. I sighed as I headed back to the class.
When I was just 20 months old, I suffered serious   43  after a bowl full of hot oil fell on my head. I was   44  to hospital and had to stay there for weeks while the doctors   45  to save my life. “Holly’s very   46  to be alive,” they told Mum and Dad. “But she’ll be   47  with scars on her head, and of course her hair won’t grow there.”
As a child, I cared much about my scars, so I   48  wore a scarf to cover them up when I left home.   49  I didn’t, people would call me horrible names like Baldy. Although my friends were always comforting me, they never   50  understood how it felt.
Then through the hospital I was   51  to a children’s burns camp, where children like me can get any help. There I   52  14-year-old Stephanie, whose burns are a lot more serious than mine. But she is so  53  that she never lets anyone put her down. “You shouldn’t   54  what people say about what you look like because we’re not different from anyone else, Holly, ”  She   55  me. “And you don’t need to wear a scarf because you look great   56  it!” For the first time in my life I could speak to someone who’d been through something   57  . So weeks later, at my 13th birthday party,   58  by her bravery, I gave up my scarf and showed off my scars. It felt amazing not having to   59  away behind my scarf.
Now, I am   60  of what I look like and much happier, because I have realized it is your personality that decides who you are.
